Canberra-based KORD Defence has won a $3.4 million Defence Innovation Hub contract to help soldiers on the battlefield control electrical devices on their weapons and body.
“It is great to see KORD working to help soldiers more effectively control a wide range of connected electronic devices using Bluetooth technology through the company’s innovative wireless control system,” said Minister for Defence Industry, Melissa Price.
“This innovation has great potential to make existing systems more soldier-friendly and improve situational awareness for our soldiers deployed in the modern battlefield.”
This is KORD Defence’s second contract with the Hub, building on the technology initially developed through a $635,000 Innovation Hub contract in 2017. KORD Defence has also won contracts to test their technology with the United States Marine Corps.
“KORD is a great example of how the Morrison Government’s investment in innovation is growing Australian small businesses, as well as helping them showcase their technology in highly competitive global markets, such as in the US,” Minister Price said.
